When Jeffrey Goldberg doctors his own writings

Michael sent me this:  "Goldberg posted a truly nasty blog post last Friday stating that jihadists were to blame in Norway. Then he doctored the post to make himself look less clownish, without acknowledging he made the changes. Then when he learned on Monday that I had the goods on him, he went back and added a self-justification that is so ridiculous and incomprehensible that it has to be seen to be believed.  Meanwhile his fellow writers at Atlantic are pretending to see nothing wrong – even though they just climbed all over a WaPo blogger (Rubin) for a similar but less egregious post of hers.   Wrote two posts about this at Flapola and crossposted them at   It’s become a minor cause célèbre on twitter today, with Jay Rosen and Glenn Greenwald going after Goldberg. Rosen has also mocked Goldberg on tumblr."
